Love and Honour and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice
Adaptation writer and Director: Priscilla Jackman Original short story Writer: Nam Le NIDA Productions
Takaya played the lead role of Nam Le in this Director's program graduate showcase. The play stretched Takaya's stage muscle which he hadn't flexed for a couple of years. It was a great challenge as the story revolved around him and combined not only the need for strong stage craft but also required a lot of vocal work, with Voice Overs scattered throughout.
Love and Honour and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice is a story about connection and disconnection. It is about memories and the intangibility of time. It is about our struggle to really knows those we love the most, but understand the least. It is also a provocation, a fabrication, a construction, blurring the lines of truth and perception.
